Summer Sky - SOLD

Summer Sky Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20" Not Available I took the boring painting from several days ago, and reworked it, again concentrating on two things, the form and shape of the clouds, and more dramatic treatment of the bit of ground. Ahh, much better! Thanks for looking.

Clouds in the Koi Pond - SOLD

Clouds in the Koi Pond Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 24" SOLD at $85.00 plus shipping. Isn't this a fun one? I did it with deliberate looseness, using big bristles brushes most of the way. It's a composite of the water lilles blooming right now in the Koi Pond in my daughter's back yard. I really enjoyed doing it, after the tightness of yesterday's piece. Thanks for looking.

Gnarled Mosaic - SOLD

Gnarled Mosaic Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. Something really quite different for me. One of my Flickr contacts, Joe, had this wonderful tree photo which he gave me permission to use, and I'd seen someone use this idea before in a really cool painting. (I liked theirs better, but...) Thanks for looking.

Rainy Greens - SOLD

Rainy Greens / Neighborhood Puddle Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14" SOLD at $50.00 plus shipping. Kitty corner across the street is a lovely vacant lot, which has some low lying grass, which filled up into a small pond, large puddle the last big rain we had. The air was still a lovely greenish light when I went out and took some photos, so here's the neighborhood, at least a small corner of it. I like how this one turned out, with all the soft grey greens. Thanks for looking.

Cloud Study 2 - SOLD

Cloud Study 2 Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16" SOLD at $40.00 plus shipping. Still studying clouds, and learning to treat them more like "forms" with shadow and dimension. Almost as if they were an odd shaped ball or an apple, you know. Thanks for looking.

Louisiana Cloud Study - SOLD

Louisiana Cloud Study Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20" Not available. Clouds are not as easy as you'd think. The color, the shaping, how defined or fluffy they should be. I can see that I'm going to have to make a real study of the skies here, the clouds are really interesting, and such big skies with the land being quite flat. I stopped on this one, because it's a nice piece, but the clouds aren't "there" yet. Thanks for looking.
